As tragic as it is to see a fictitious party with no policies based purely on the cult of personality of one closet-Nazi win a majority, the total percentage of votes split between all the clear Remain parties is actually greater than the BRXT/UKIP vote.

Apologies on behalf of England anyway. We are literally the worst thing about the UK and the lunatics are dangerously close to taking over.

From the results around Europe it looks like a growing trend. Luckily letting right wing scumbags get into power has never caused any problems in Europe. Nope, it always worked out just dandy.

This season of Brexit has totally jumped the shark now.

To be honest, if Brexit destroys the Conservatives then that would be some small mercy.

Boris Johnson is actually going to be the Prime Minister of the UK. Let that sink in for a moment.

A serial-lying scarecrow with an agenda seizing power of a nation does sound a bit too much like the plot of a Final Fantasy game to actually be reality.

We are beyond a joke of a nation, Johnson is just the nail in the coffin. A backward looking European backwater where standards have been slipping for years and where an ever present underlying xenophobic and racist contingent has been slowly simmering over the top, all while the best things about Britain have been gradually stripped away by serial liars hellbent on reducing the state to nothing whilst promising the complete opposite to the mugs who are stupid enough to vote for them. We're a country of morons.

And meanwhile, Brexit deadline day marches slowly closer and all of the Tory hopefuls in the current leadership contest are promising completely unworkable or downright disastrous approaches to it.

Plus who knows what was promised to Trump during his state visit. The NHS being sold off to US insurance companies?

But we DO know that happened, more or less. It's what else they promised is what's the worry.

In your face, Gove!

Boris and Hunt are both horrible prospects for PM, but I don’t know how I’d live in a country run by the hateful scion of a haunted puppet and the jaded business incarnation of Austin Powers.

Jeremy Edwin, however, has fucked up every job he's been given in government.

And he's the alternative to Boris Johnson.

Fuck me.
